Just a list of soon(ish) releases I'm trying to get my dirty mitts on.
Pretty sure this is streaming someplace, but for now I'm content with the
multi-track preview I heard on a local radio station. Just gorgeous.
Took a preposterously long time for this band to grow on me. I'm pretty
sure Catch for Us the Foxes gathered dust on my shelf for a good two
years after I listened to it once. I'm not proud of this. But now I can't get
enough of them.
Rize of the Fenix
Eh. Who knows? Like "The Roadie" video, though--but that might just be
my residual pangs for K-Powers.
|4|| ||The Walkmen|
Loved Lisbon, been meaning to explore outwards for too long.
Yes, I know it's already out. I've yet to actually pick it up.
Could be cool? Also, I'm hoping a bunch of people accidentally discover
these guys as a result of ill-informed post-Avengers Google searches.

Among the Leaves
Kozelek has yet to release anything that I've not been floored by. Some
may find his slurred mumbles and nigh constant fingerpicking tiresome after
a while, but I, for one, am still falling for it after all these years.
Fire from the Sky
So these guys kind of fell off my radar for a good while, and I'm not even
sure about the current lineup--which is strange, because back in their
heyday, they were one of the more consistent NWOAHM acts.
Beneath the Scars
Speaking of off the radar. A consistent (and consistently underrated, which
may be part of why I like them) hard rock band. Maybe this will pacify me
until that long-fabled Revis comeback actually materializes.
There is no way this is anything beneath incredible.

The Temper Trap
I still listen to Conditions pretty regularly. Hopefully this will have its
Mechanize was pretty forgettable, in my opinion, but these guys seem to
work better with concept albums, so...
About damn time, fellas.
Ditto, except with a non-gender-exclusive interpretation of 'fellas.'
|15||Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros|
7,000 dirty hippies, making music that you can't help but like.
|16||Devin Townsend Project|
By a Thread
Got the Contain Us Box Set on the cheap, can hopefully do the same for
this epic musical monstrosity of melodious mayhem and menacing
mellowness. Ain't alliteration a gas, gang?
